    I use SPF50 and I still get burnt.  I also try to stay out of the sun midday and go in out of it as much as possible.

    I'm currently icing my face.

    .. I'm so sunburnt it's not even funny. Even my eyelids are burnt. Stupid me for falling asleep by the pool... You'd think someone would have the decency to wake me up! Urgh. The one time I wouldn't mind someone waking me up and no one does lol

    Annoying

    Sunburns are so annoying and painful, I don't like tanning because I get burned easily. You can barley move, every inch of you body aches like hell, and you thirsty all the time.

    So I've just started to ref soccer games for U-8, which is like 7-9 year olds. I also play soccer, so I've gradually gotten this nice toast color right below my knee caps up to my thighs where my shorts cut off--bellow my shins? White. Like death white. So anyway, first day being...
